We all love seeing a great rack, and huge antlers on elk too! Post up photos of the cow elk you or your crew have taken! While I've been "elk hunting" for three years now, I have never taken an elk. I finally drew an elk tag that will put me into a spot that has elk, and lot's of them. I have warned my son and my buddy that will be with me that I am taking the first mature legal elk that presents an opportunity as I want elk meat first and foremost and shooting a cow is perfectly fine with me!

My boy D! His name is ridiculously long, so I shortened it up a bit.

ohiohunter, that photo is scary as hell!

Brad, Love it! Love the frontal shot, care to share the story? Seems the cows are much more jittery, so to see a frontal on a cow is fairly rare to me.

Here is 'Deertick' telling the story of that morning.

But the cow wasnt the highlight :)

My first bowkill about 15 yrs ago. Hunted hard for 18 days before I got this cow, very tough pack-out. I lost 15 pounds on that hunt, wish I was that skinny today!

Not a single one of you look disappointed with a cow in your photos! Love it! I'm surprised at some people's opinions on shooting a cow. Like I said, for me it's going to be the first mature legal elk!

Pic of my buddy's cow.....one I missed with my ML when I misjudged the distance badly.....then she ran by him at under 50 yards and he connected. This girl came running up the middle of a meadow chased by a bull right before noon. I was walking down. I got my shooting stick out, ML up, she saw me and stopped for a split second...I guessed 200 yards and held on her spine.....it was more like 300....sigh. Took place in the span of maybe 5-10 seconds from seeing her to the shot with most of the time taken to make sure I had a safe shot as I misjudged distance and hoping she would keep running closer.....she didn't.

One word... freakingrangefinder! They aren't just for bowhunting, thankfully a clean miss.

My mouth is watering just looking at all that delicious elk meat! I love shooting cows, probably because I care more about the backstraps than the rack when it comes to elk! Best eating there is!

My last day, last morning cow. Never been so happy to finally have an opportunity as when this big girl walked up. Had the last tenderloin Saturday after finishing the vinyl siding on my home. Best steak I have ever eaten!!!! Pete

LINK. That cow looks huge! Was she that big or just looks that way in the pic?

7 x 7 bull, spike or cow...if their legal, and I've a good shot...I'm notching my tag My first elk may be aways off perhaps, but any legal elk of either sex will be the icing on the cake

No effing way am I spending the time to 'pose' the elk for pics, like tucking the legs, moving them, etc

I take pics as they lay

x2! Especially solo. I have one thing on my mind after I have an elk down.

T-Roy she was pretty big. Yielded something like 190#s of meat. She was an old dry cow but she ate well. I am holding her head and not perched 10 yards behind her for reference, lol. I had a 70 year old buddy that doesn't own a smart phone trying to use mine. Most of the pictures were of his fingers so this was a good one, ha. X3 on not rolling an elk for pictures. I think tucking the legs of a deer looks good but looks entirely unnatural on an elk.

My one and only cow... Colorado 2001 or 02' I believe. I need to get back, REALLY BAD. This was my first elk also and 1.8 miles from the truck, as the crow flys. Enjoyed every bit of it! Glad I've since lost that dumb ass hat. :)

ohiohunter... that first pic is hilarious. D looks like a midget behind that cow. lol

Sorry for the crappy photo, but it is the only one I have of the only elk that I have killed (2001).

Embry, I'll post some more. He's about the size of an Ewok.

A little more current. My dad called this one in for me on my last day of hunting with him. Cool experience and tasty meat!
